'Community' Season 6: A Wedding, Some Babies, But No Gimmicks... Probably
Community Season 6 hasn't even started production yet, but that didn't stop us from trying to get information out of creator Dan Harmon, writer-executive producer Chris McKenna, and stars Gillian Jacobs (Britta Perry) and Jim Rash (Dean Pelton) while they were at Comic-Con.

They all confirmed that Britta and Jeff's wedding is really off, but might there be another Greendale wedding? Rash has a pretty epic sounding pitch for why Dean Pelton and Jeff Winger should live happily ever after. (Of course.) Harmon's "pitch" was even more ridiculous somehow — Community Babies, anyone? Yahoo does have a lot of computers for CG work...

Harmon also dished about trying to cut down on the big theme episodes this season (though he later joked in their panel that they're already working on a Pokemon episode), saying he wants to do an homage to the simpler times of Community Season 1 instead. But let's not forget how great Season 1 was! Chicken fingers, the first paintball episode... we'd watch an homage to that any day. Watch our interview above to see what else they teased.
During their Comic-Con panel, Harmon talked more about the show getting a second life on Yahoo Screen: "Wherever the show is, people will find it — especially when it's on Yahoo Screen. It's Season 6 of Community. You'll be watching it the way you've always watched it — only now it's legal."
"I know most of you watch on tiny little screens and now we're on one. F--- you network television! Unless they want us back," star Joel McHale joked. "I had no doubt we would be back. Much like a Japanese general in World War II, the only option was victory or suicide. As I've said a lot, I love the show," McHale added, before proclaiming it "the greatest television show in the history of all media."
And for all the Community fans who've been hashtagging #sixseasonsandamovie, Rash is right there with you. "To maybe see that hashtag become a reality is an amazing thing."
Community Season 6 premieres this fall on Yahoo Screen.
